The Golden Skybridge
Since the summer of 2021, visitors to our local town of Golden, British Columbia, have had the opportunity to walk across the Golden Skybridge, Canada’s newest and highest pair of suspension bridges. The bridges offer incredible views of the surrounding Purcell and Rocky Mountains as they take visitors over a deep canyon which crosses Edelweiss Creek and features a 61-metre waterfall.
Hanging Over Canyons
The Golden Skybridges, or Golden Sky Bridges, opened to the public in May 2021 and have been an must-see in the Golden, BC area ever since. The larger bridge is 130 metres high and 150 metres long, making it Canada’s highest suspension bridge. The second bridge is 80 metres high and 140 metres long, and is Canada’s second highest suspension bridge.
An Adventure Hotspot
Along with these iconic bridges, the park also boasts The Railrider Mountain Coaster, The Canyon Edge Challenge Course, The Sky Zipline, Axe Throwing, and a climbing wall. You can make the most of your trip the Golden Skybridge with The Adventure Pass, which includes admission + access to all of these adrenaline-spiking rides and activities.
Putting Down Roots
It may now be clear why this family tourist attraction was originally slated to be called the Rocky Mountain Adventure Park. Along with partnership with Pursuit Collection, a travel and hospitality company who run well-known attractions around the world including the nearby Banff Gondola and the Columbia Icefields Skywalk, the decision was made to change the name to Golden Skybridge to accentuate the main attraction.
We are so excited to see a global company with strong roots in the Canadian Rockies invest in our local community. The Golden Skybridge is a great part of our small mountain town.
